We had a storm like this last night with over 1200 lightening strikes, I sure feel closer to Mother Nature when her passion is marching.

You sense when a great storm approaches
It rambles and shakes from the floor
Feels like horses stampeding
Just nature marching once more
The awesome drips that are speeding
Like bullets when rain hits the roof
Its hard to quiet your heartbeat
When drops are like horses hooves
They seem to be chasing their shadows
The shadows being the clouds
The darkness of forces approaching
Thunder that threatens...out loud
Flares of natures ambition
Feeding the earth with such force
Spears of light...ammunition
Threatening us all on her course
Marching like Sherman she broaches
The marshes that lead to the sea
Afterward calming her creatures
The animals, birds and then me
The calm after she leaves us
Its heaven smitten with greens
Limes and colors of emeralds
Washed over and smelling so clean.

2004 Susan Vegter

Her passion and perhaps. her pain, truly seems to be on the march quite often these days. And this is quite a powerful piece, Susan.

Dyanmic light unfolding in visual pen...struck with thought beneath natures wing...with renewed calm.

"Washed over and smelling so clean," is right, but it doesn't take us very long to become grimy again . . .
